Achieva Shimian Monitor Club - Page 67

post #661 of 3508
Did you message ta_planet? I remember a few pages back that someone had some issues with their monitor and was trying to send it back to ta_plant, but I don't think he ever followed up. Just curious, because the pixel perfect shimian there looks mighty attractive. At the beginning of this thread anyways he seemed like the guy to go with.

Some dust under the glass is the only issue, but I still like it so much, the dust is a minor issue (for only $320 anyway, which is what I paid). The default brick that came with it is by Nanjing Frontek 110V+, and it works fine, usually lukewarm to touch.

I asked red-cap and they said it only comes with a 220v adapter.... Back to the Potalion it is then... still figuring out if anyone has gotten it to work with OS X.

Ok so I will probably take the dive with dream-seller but before I do I was wondering if anyone can tell me if my gpu is compatible with the Shimian.

Listed as having a single link DVI-D and a dual link DVI-I.

Will both DVI-D dual link and DVI-I dual link run this monitor? or does it have to be a specific one rather than both.

Can anyone show me how to increase the refresh rate? I have mine at 65Hz but it won't go any higher.

Where did you get that from? I'd be interested in getting one of those if you have a link please?

The dual link DVI-I will work. It has an analog signal in addition to the digital one. That is why you can also connect a VGA monitor. DVI-D only has the digital signal, but will also work with these monitors.

It better had work as I also have a 6870 and have a Shimian on the way.

I already posted in the catleap/shimian thread but I'll do a quick review here as well.

Bought mine from dream-seller, took him 48 hours to say something after I ordered it but when he did it was with the tracking info. Bought the cheapest version at 297$ + 15$ shipping (4 days to Romania) + 15$ taxes (declared as a 100$ gift), The monitor had a printed paper about how he opened and checked my monitor before shipping. It's absolutely flawless, no dead/stuck pixels or backlight bleeding.

This is by far the best purchase I have made in years and I think I have spent hours already just staring at my wallpaper.

Do you know the return policy on faulty monitors? aka do I have to pay for shipping back?

I believe AW and BCC pays return shipping on a DOA/faulty monitor, depending on what the fault is. That may be for a pixel defect in perfect pixel models, for example.

It was listed for £20 on eBay Uk if you search for it in "Completed listings". You can send the seller an email and see if he'll relist it.

I don't think we're allowed to list ebay links so I can't link it to you.
